Experience Utah’s 5 National Parks with Mountain Based

Camp the West inspiration

S. John and Ede Ebert founded the Iowa Mountaineers, leading over 75,000 adventurers over 1,300 peaks.

Mountain Based is a family-owned, third-generation adventure company with a long history of outdoor exploration. The two brothers and cousin who started Mountain Based were raised on stories of their parents’ and grandparents’ mountaineering and climbing accomplishments. Now they share those stories and help campers create new ones while traversing Utah’s parks and wild spaces.

And you can join them.

The 5-day camping trip brings participants to Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Arches, and Canyon Lands National Parks. You’ll hike, camp, and get dirty in the bizarre and surreal places that make the American Southwest such a legendary landscape.

Angel’s Rest is a highlight at Zion for brave hikers…

You’ll be led by two knowledgeable guides who share their local expertise and knowledge of the geologic and human histories of the region along the way.

This five day, four night tour starts in Las Vegas, and airfare is included with your prize.

To Enter to win Camp the West’s grand prize, enter your email up to once a day, now through December 19. The winner will receive the all-inclusive Utah Explored Five-Day Camping Trip from Mountain Based, plus domestic airfare to Las Vegas.
